Weekend Breakfast - Pancake Cups

This idea sprang from a recipe I found in the book Kitchen Playdates by Lauren Deen. In her version thinly sliced wheat bread forms the cups instead of pancakes. I didn't have any thinly sliced bread on hand nor did I want to run to the store so I gave pancakes a try. It was great! Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Make your favorite pancake batter but add a few extra tablespoons of water. Add 1 tablespoon at a time to make sure the batter doesn't get too thin. You want the batter thinner than usual but not watery.

Step 2: Use a 1/4 c. measuring cup to add the batter to the pan or griddle. Cook pancakes.

Step 3: Lightly grease your muffin cups with butter. Don't forget the sides

Step 4: Gently press pancakes into the muffin cups. Remember to press around the bottom edges of the muffin cups.


Step 5: Bake in a 325 degree oven for 5-8 minutes.

Step 6: Let pancakes cool in the muffin tin.

Step 7: When ready to serve, remove your pancake cup, place on a plate and reheat in the microwave (if desired.) Fill with yummies and eat!



Filling ideas:
Strawberries and whip cream (as shown)
Scrambled eggs, bacon and syrup drizzled on the plate (as shown)
Peanut butter and bananas
Blueberries
Ricotta cheese and berries
Lemon curd, raspberries and a dollop of whip cream


See you on Monday for you-know-what! I have a surprise for you!

I found this post through the Crafty Crow and I just love your blog. I made these pancake cups this morning for a 4th of July brunch for the kids and they absolutely LOVED it. Thank you so much. They were super easy too. I have made sandwiches the same way before too, they are great for parties.

I made these this morning...made two for each of us, one with eggs and bacon and the other with strawberries and blueberries. I didn't have any whipped cream so we sprinkled powdered sugar on them. YUM! Thanks for the great idea.

Love this idea! Did it this morning with microwave pancakes because I'm too lazy to mix the batter. LOL. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity!
